Under the ground, earthworms are hard at work decomposing organic material and producing castings full of nutrients, often known as vermicompost.
Compost maximizes your garden’s ability to nurture healthy plants while minimizing the amount of trash you throw away. There are many composting options.
As your plants grow, they use the nutrients in the soil to grow. This depletes the nutrients in the soil, and those nutrients don’t come back on their own. That means there are fewer nutrients for your next planting, which will make it more difficult for your next batch of plants to grow. This is where compost comes in.
